Students may make arrangements with instructors to complete course work individually (instead of in the regular classroom setting). The resulting "by-arrangement" courses are omnibus-numbered (e.g., 401-409, 501-509, or 601-609) and students register for them using a By-Arrangement Request form, available from the instructor's department. In most cases, by-arrangement courses must be approved by the instructor and department chair, but those arranged with instructors in the College of Urban and Public Affairs and the Graduate School of Social Work additionally require the appropriate Dean's signature.
By-Arrangement Request forms are available online, at the Registration office in the Neuberger Hall lobby and from the instructor. Submit completed forms to the Registration office for processing. Changes made to the student's registration are viewable via the PSU Information System.
The final day to enroll in by-arrangement courses is the same as the final day to add classes for the term. However, if enrollment in the by-arrangement is required in order to recieve Financial Aid, the course must be added before the end of the second week of the term.
